Helpful Tips for New Indie Authors

Helpful Tips

I noted in my prior post that it’s been a year since self-publishing my first romance novel, and I have to admit that my journey on becoming an indie author has been an enjoyable one. Throughout the year I’ve received so much useful writing advice and information; all which has helped me grow as a writer.

In this post I’m giving back in hopes of helping others; my advice for new indie authors starting out would be, have patience and stay committed. Everyone has hopes and dreams of becoming rich and famous, but realistically there’s a chance that might never happen. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean you can’t succeed in what you love doing, and what I mean by that is whatever you’re passionate about just stay focused on executing your goal from start to finish. When you can accomplish that then you will always succeed by coming out on top.

Lastly, one final point I’m going to share is do not burn yourself out. I did that writing my first and second novel by not allowing any downtime in between — that was such a bad idea and a big no-no. Nowadays, it’s mandatory that I take breaks in between writing projects. Trust me, even something as small as doing nothing for a weekend but being idle will do you a world of good.

Just remember when it comes to your writing routine make sure you choose a non-stressful schedule that works best for you. All things considered, being an indie author is great, and the best part for me is there’s no one to answer to because I’m the boss!

Here’s the book blurb for Trial of Marriage 2: Sacrifices:

It’s been a wonderful year of growing and being in a good place since Angelique and Trey reunited. However, whenever there is something good, something bad is not too far behind. In their lives, the term ‘happily ever after’, is becoming difficult to achieve.

Out of her coma, Bryn Thornton has been busy getting her life back in order and that has included building a friendship with Angelique. Opening up a new branch of her design company in Pittsburgh, she stuns Angelique by offering her a dream job opportunity she can’t refuse. Accepting the position, however, brings forth positive and negative reactions from Trey, and to make things worse, she also has to deal with her new co-worker, Chad Worthington. He’s tall, good-looking and minus a few characteristics, he’s almost a carbon copy of her husband. She can’t put her finger on it, but she can feel in her gut that there’s something unscrupulous about him.

The issues surfacing around Trey and Angelique are not only restricted to them, and if they aren’t careful, they will extend out to their son. No matter how hard they try to rectify things individually for the sake of their family, matters only seem to deteriorate.

Secrets have always been a big thing with Angelique, but unfortunately she hasn’t fared any better, and the one she has inherited is tearing her apart emotionally. There’s a giant bomb ticking that is about to explode. Neither of them has learned from past mistakes and they have taken their second chance of happiness for granted. They say love can conquer all, but will it triumph this time?
